I grew up in a non-practicing Catholic family environment. I have known, after validating
without spirit certain stages of the Christian "curriculum", a form of emancipation. The religious question has always aroused my curiosity. In 2016, while I was struggling to find new reporting ideas,
I read again Douglas Kennedy's documentary narrative, In god'country published in 1993, a mocking immersion in the world of Christian fundamentalism into the Bible Belt in the southern United States. When I walk the streets of the Tenderloin, it’s in search of C.Card, the loser detective, an unusual character in Richard Brautigan's A Private Investigator in Babylon, and when I walk under the moist, fragrant foliage of the Appalachian forests, it's because the words of Ron Rash drove me there.
